The best thing we will see all year. Best song too. *****(Update! I found out who is behind this brilliance. @ih8rxckstxr not only made this gem but also released the track! So give him a follow and get that! It really needs to be heard around the world and become the phenomenon it is destined to be. Also, thanks to @internet.ghost for bringing this to my attention in the first place. Follow that account too! There’s still good stuff in this world!)
CultureShift’s Ryan Patrick Hooper got ahold of the video’s elusive creator on Tuesday mere days after his video bounced into our hearts.
He would only reveal that he’s a late-20-something from Dallas named Bobby. He says he struggled to find a foothold in the music industry as a rapper and writer and opted to follow his passion.
“I basically just said, ‘You know what? I’m going to do the two things I love to do,” says RxCKSTxR. ”I love cracking jokes. I do it with my friends all the time. I love making music. So I just started making my account about that.”
So why a puppy dog bouncin’?
“When I started looking at the puppy dog video, I was like ‘Man, he’s on beat actually. He’s actually bouncing on beat!’ So I was like ‘You know what? Let me put a beat to it.’”
And the rest is history.
